Beware! Bad Language Ahead!

This post is brought to you today because of Mamalode, one of my favorite mom mags!!

But, really? Mamalode has a… *furtive whisper* a potty mouth.

Gasp.

Now, right from the start, I always feel like I gotta apologize for the saucy language, y’all. It’s my mom’s fault.

When I was a kid, my sweet, totally angelic* mother would occasionally TRY, to the best of her abilities, to utter a bad word, and it would go like this:

Mom, frustrated about something:

“Well. This fiddlesticks. This was just working yesterday. I know because I used it.” Deep sigh. Looks around. “Well. This is just unacceptable. I mean… (jiggles handle on whatever it is) this is just really… I just have to say…” Big long silence followed by more sighs.

“Ok, I know it’s NOT ok, to talk like this, and I just am really, really sorry, but I just have to say…”

My sister and I are so poised and anxious for her to blurt it out that the stress is making us swear a lot.  But inwardly, of course.

“I am sorry. I really am. But this just is, well, you know…”

“MOM, PLEASE. JUST SAY IT. WE CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE! SAY IT!”

Sniff. “It’s just a *teensy tiny whisper voice” damn nuisance.”

And we can breathe again.

“I am so sorry! I know! Bad language and all! What is the world coming to!” and she grabs a hand towel and starts cleaning something.

Anyhow.

I won this award (See below) because I am! I AM! I am a Badass Mom!!

I am just gonna OWN IT! That’s right, Mother Forker!!!

Oh, I am so sorry, I got out of control there. I suddenly have a weird desire to go grab a hand towel and clean something…

Thank you, Mamalode! You are the fracking cherry on the flipping cake of my fudgetastic day!

I am curious, what are your favorite non swearing words? Just to add to my repertoire? I need some new ones, badly.

*When my mom reads this? She’s gonna snort and say, “Angelic, my a$$.” I know her.

  1. My brother taught his kids to say “Oh, Nancy!” for their interjection of choice. Eventually he realized there were times that called for a stronger cry…and thus “Oh, Nancy Drew!” was coined. Still makes me laugh every time I hear his kids say it!

  2. OH NANCY DREW!! (Oh, yes, I did….) I clicked on the link and saw that your hubby nominated you, which darn near brought tears to my eyes. Who says romance is dead?! Of course, how could I expect anything less from the dude who’s married to a BAM!

  3. I have to admit I come from a family that would put sailors to shame in the language department. When I started working at my current job 11 years ago, I learned that my boss uses no foul language. EVER. I have never heard her say one. She will say Shuckeydarn on occasion. Guess who that one rubbed off on. 😀
